Meal Planning and Prep 11/9 to 11/15

This week’s meal prep led me to get really irritated in the kitchen. I made a huge mess and even though I knew I would clean at the end, it still drove me crazy. I think it was also because I had to do it all on Sunday, and I just felt like it was a lot of work. But the good news is that it got done and saved me lots of time during the week!

weekly meal planning and prep

Here’s what last week’s meal plan looked like:

Sunday: Homemade pizza with grilled chicken and vegetables

Monday: Salmon, baked potato, broccoli/cauliflower/carrots

Tuesday: Chicken coated in almond flour and cooked on the stove with zucchini noodles and tomato sauce

Wednesday: turkey burgers, sweet potato fries, asparagus

Thursday: spaghetti squash with beef, spinach, carrots, and tomato sauce

Friday: salads and pasta with turkey meatballs for Rob, grilled chicken and potato for me

Saturday: “Thanksgiving dinner” with my parents since we will be with Rob’s family for the actual day

Breakfasts: sweet potato cookies, eggs with veggies and bacon, smoothies

Lunches: salads with grilled chicken or steak and veggies, leftovers

Snacks: fruit (berries, apples, pears), paleo chocolate chunk cookies, peanut butter snack bars

Here is the meal prep that I did:

-cleaned and stored berries

-cut up bell pepper,asparagus, broccoli, cucumber

-roasted spaghetti squash, broccoli, sweet potato

-baked cookies

-Rob grilled chicken

-cooked steak

-made sweet potato breakfast cookies

-spiralized zucchini

-made PB snack bars

-fried plantains

There were actually a few other things I was planning to make, but I didn’t buy certain ingredients and figured I was better off anyway. By the time I finished all this I was ready to get out of the kitchen!

-Do you ever have days where you just can’t stand being in the kitchen?

I’ll also be linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers on Sunday for their meal planning link-up!

    • Haha thanks! Since salmon is usually the only fish we eat we try to have it once a week. Unfortunately the quality is kind of hit or miss at our grocery store, so its kind of a gamble buying it each week!

    • Not really, we just try to eat that stuff earlier in the week, and then use leftovers for lunches later in the week. It seems to work pretty well for the most part!

    • The cooke dough snack bars are so good! They taste like a decadent treat but are actually pretty healthy:)

    • Thanks! It can be rough the days when the kitchen is just a super stressful place. Sometimes its better to cut things short or avoid it altogether:)
